Brilliant5 star

So full of twists and turns, surprises, suspense. An original premise. A heart-rending story. So real, I can only hope that the author had not gone through what these protagonists had. It rang true and experiential. It is said, “write what you know.”55

The Girl across the Bay5 star

Very good book. It will keep you wanting to read the whole thing in one sitting.55


Raising Children3 star

This author delves into the minds of grownups who were abused as children. The confusion, lack of confidence and the blame they assign to themselves makes this a little too realistic for my taste.35


Not a fan2 star

This book started off boring. There are multiple typos, but I continued to read hoping it will progress and become more interesting but it didn’t. What a waste of time.25
